Scott Shaw!

Scott Shaw! is an example of Hunter S. Thompson’s statement: “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.” An award-winning cartoonist/writer of comic books, animation, advertising and toy design, Scott is also a historian of all forms of cartooning. After writing and drawing a number of underground “comix”, Scott has worked on many mainstream comic books, including: SONIC THE HEDGEHOG (Archie); SIMPSONS COMICS, BART SIMPSON’S TREEHOUSE OF HORROR and RADIOACTIVE MAN (Bongo); WEIRD TALES OF THE RAMONES (Rhino); and his co-creation with Roy Thomas, CAPTAIN CARROT AND HIS AMAZING ZOO CREW! (DC). Scott has also worked on numerous animated cartoons, including: producing/directing of John Candy’s CAMP CANDY (NBC/DIC/Saban) and Martin Short’s THE COMPLETELY MENTAL MISADVENTURES OF ED GRIMLEY (NBC/Hanna-Barbera Productions); GARFIELD AND FRIENDS (CBS/Film Roman); and the Emmy-winning JIM HENSON’S MUPPET BABIES (CBS/Marvel Productions). As Senior Art Director for the Ogilvy & Mather advertising agency, Scott worked on dozens of commercials for Post Pebbles cereals with the Flintstones. He also designed a line of Hanna-Barbera action figures for McFarlane Toys. Scott was one of the comic fans who organized the first San Diego Comic-Con, where he has become known for performing his hilarious ODDBALL COMICS slide show.
